HENRY GEORGE SHRUBSOLE

(Henry) George Shrubsole enlisted in the army 4th Bn the Buffs 1st Nov 1915 giving a false age.  After a letter from his father & production of his birth certificate he was discharged on 17th Feb 1916.  He was born 3rd Jun 1899 so was only 16 years and 5mths when he enlisted!

Presumably George, (real name Henry George but he always called himself George), couldn't wait until he was old enough to enlist legally, as by 26th April 1918 he was a casualty of the 2nd World War and had died at the tender age of 18 years + 10 mths.  I don't know when he enlisted again but he was 18 by June 1917 & eligible & had joined up with the 18th Bn Lancashire Fusiliers.  I believe the Lancashire Fusiliers 18th (Service) Battalion (2nd South East Lancashire) became absorbed into the 5th army fighting in France, and as we all know the conditions were appalling.  His death is commemorated at Poziers, Somme, France.
